    Optical Biopsy with Confocal Microendoscopy
    Using optical biopsy methods, doctors can potentially identify cancer and other conditions more accurately, in less time, and earlier in the course of disease than they can with standard screening techniques. Advanced medical imaging procedures such as computed tomography, ultrasound and magnetic resonance imaging have greatly improved physicians’ ability to detect cancer and other diseases. However, in order to make a definitive diagnosis, doctors often need to extract one or more tissue samples from a patient. This process is not only invasive, but can lead to high rates of misdiagnoses, especially when the disease is diffuse or at an early ...
